A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 1st to 7th level characters (Tiers: 1–2, 3–4, and 6–7).

You are sent to Aspis Consortium-infested Bloodcove to gather supplies for a nearly doomed Pathfinder mission nearby. Disguised as ordinary merchants, you have little time to gather what you need and get out before the Consortium discovers and destroys you.

The Bloodcove Disguise is the first scenario in the two-part Before the Dawn campaign arc. Pathfinder Society Scenario #2-02: Before the Dawn—Part II: Rescue at Azlant Ridge is the sequel.

Written by Crystal Frasier

This scenario is designed for play in Pathfinder Society Organized Play, but can easily be adapted for use with any world. This scenario is compliant with the Open Game License (OGL) and is suitable for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Great Story, Great Sandbox


Perspective: GM'd once

This story-arc is easily one of my favorites. Part I does a great job of making the PCs feel the hostility of their environment and lets the PCs drive the scenario's (actually logical) plot. Excellent RP opportunities with a few interesting combats. The "sneak around" mechanic is nice in getting the whole party involved, too.

Lots of stuff to do


I will probably edit this once I have run this as a GM.

The primary mechanic to go around town is clever, and allows for almost everyone to feel like they are carrying their weight.
Non-linear progression. Different approaches are possible for each encounter, rewarding creativity.

Overall a solid scenario.

Great Sandbox and Roleplay Adventure


GM perspective, run at 3-4 subtier.

Definitely needs a couple read throughs for best effect, but very worth it. If you have time to spend and some imaginative players, the traveling skill checks can be very entertaining. The social encounters throughout are great, though the combats leave a little to be desired. Fights ranged from pathetic and noneffective to potentially deadly amounts of damage, but not terribly interesting or memorable. The tactics of the 'boss' in the end are an exception, but the mooks were again a let down. Still, the party had a great time and so did I as the GM.

Entertaining but tough

***( )( )

Player review.

An entertaing but tough scenario. I found this an odd scenario for two reasons. Firstly, it suggests a jungle/wilderness adventure but is in fact an urban adventure. Secondly, the major BBEG encounter is oddly placed overly weakening the party for the final scenes. Had a good time playing but is rather average.

A great sandbox adventure!


This is an adventure that is very sandbox and allows creative people to go crazy! A great DM will have lots of fun for people playing this.

Now the idea of sneaking around a town is great! The penatly for failure and such is also awesome. The writer including new classes does a great job of not forcing them and beign creative with the encounter for them.
